Does anyone know what the chords are to the intro of scarlet begonias?

I have the Garcia/Hunter songbook and it says the intro chord is just B. Hope that helps. :-)

The intro is mostly in B, as is the little riff after the first line of the song

Pretty much right! I play around with different voicings of the chords like inversions or different barre positions and sometimes Bsus4 for the E and Esus4 for the A...
